    jump rope ftw.

    I was all conference middle linebacker and doing jump rope excessively while doing other cardio training helped greatly to increase my stamina and performance.
    However, nothing helps more than just running a lot... but make sure you run at different speeds. Do not do a solid jog for the whole 2-miles. Jog for a mile, then do sprint/walks for a mile, and then try and jog out another half mile or so.

    Depends on the position you play. If you are a linemen or fullback, then yes. If you are a strong safety or corner, not so much.

    Again though, the best thing to do if you plan to run is change your rate of speed and doing sprint walks or sprint jogs (for the better runners out there) help a lot.

    interval running always helped me out. change of direction work, running stairs/bleachers. our fitness test for college ball was 16 timed 110's (mile total). Running 110's with a 45-50 second rest really boosted me up. up-downs, mountain climbers, chopping directional rolls help.

    mix it up but keep doing shit.

    Man, I fucking hated up-downs.

    We had this other crap called red-birds where we had to sprint the perimeter of the field (all 4 sides) in less than 50seconds and we would get a 1min rest inbetween each run. The first couple were ok, but the last few sucked.. However they really helped when game day came.
